A Swinging Jungle Tale


A GRAMMY Nominee for Best Children's Album for 2012 and a Parents' Choice Gold Award winner, "JumpinJazz Kids - A Swinging Jungle Tale" is an imagination celebration that combines classic storytelling with fun, popinfluenced jazz songs performed by worldrenowned jazz artists Al Jarreau, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Hubert Laws and more. Backed by a jazz quartet and a full symphony orchestra,' A Swinging Jungle Tale' follows the magical adventures of a seven yearold girl named Claire and her stuffed animal friends as they go searching for her Grandpa's "lost story" and find the secret to creativity that lies within us all - our imagination! "A Swinging Jungle Tale" is also a critically acclaimed, interactive family concert in the tradition of 'Peter and the Wolf' and the 'Sorcerers' Apprentice' where audience participation is strongly encouraged, as each song has a special "animal dance" that the whole family - young and old - can imitate to become part of the show. The music and story for 'A Swinging Jungle Tale' was created by 5time Heartland Emmy Awardwinning composer/producer Mark Oblinger, symphonic arranger/composer and veteran jazz pianist Steve Barta and author/educator Linda Lawson.
